Hollywood Studios – World Famous Busts Bill Cosby

If it has been a while since you visited Walt Disney World, then you will be in store for some changes all for the better.  MGM is now called Hollywood Studios, and this is one of my favorite theme parks to visit.  With the addition of the Hall of Fame busts (Bill Cosby pictured here) it really gives us guests a chance to really soak  in the recently re-named theme park and a  chance to move a little away from Walt Disney world and into the movie and Hollywood section of this theme park.

There are many different themes through out the park that highlight the movie industry and famous movies.  Get all of your Walt Disney merchandise online and save money that you will most certainly need for your next trip. Free online quotes on Disney merchandise is one of the things that I can offer you here on the Why Disney blog.

Rides that are a must at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios…

  • The Rock and Roll Roller coaster ( This is a must!)
  • Toy Story Toy Mania (Get the fast pass, lines get up to about 90 minutes plus)
  • Star Wars Star Tours – Newly renovated, and the rides are the not all the same.
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  • American Idle (Lots of fun, but when is laughing at people not fun?)
  • The Great Movie ride – Truly one of my favorites. Visit Aliens, OZ, and more.
  • The Little Mermaid show
  • The Beauty and Beast Live show
  • Fantasmic an incredible lights show with all of the villains, and other characters.
  • The Muppets in 3-D
  • The Tower of Terror (Get ready for quite a drop)

In addition to rides you can expect to get a few shows too.  The High school musicals have really caught on and become a piece of the Disney magic, and people especially young girls really like all of the tunes and the shows are quite entertaining. Get into the Walt Disney World gear and show off your colors and Disney style, do it now and get the items shipped to you just in time for your next trip to the happiest place on Earth.  The Magical Kingdom and the magic of Walt Disney World.

Walt Disney World’s – It All Started With A Mouse!

I just concluded one of the best trips to Walt Disney World that my family has ever shared.  A (1) one week stay at the Boardwalk Inn one of my favorite of all the Walt Disney World resorts. Disney’s Boardwalk Inn is within walking distance to the Epcot Center, and there is also a ferry boat called the “Friendship” that can take you to Disney’s Epcot Center or Hollywood Studios.

There’s most certainly a wonderful memory waiting for your family at a price that’s right for you, entertainment like you have never shared.  In addition to the Ferry, you can also use their Bus transportation to get anywhere else in Walt Disney’s Magical Kingdom, from the Magic Kingdom itself, to Downtown Disney, to Animal Kingdom and on and on. With over 20 Resort hotels, a variety of themes and room types, and multiple ticket options for everyone from the Florida Resident to the world traveler, there is no reason not to come and enjoy Walt Disney World.

With Walt Disney World you can also enjoy the Disney dining plans. If you work your way around the meals at the park, and make a few reservations here and there you can really experience some fantastic meals at their finest restaurants.  So what will your memory be? If you want to plan your trip today you can check out (3) three vacation options below, or simply visit the Walt Disney World Vacation guide and you can customize your very own trip that will fit your family and your budget, I can tell you that I went prepared and saved plenty of the money that I had earmarked (no pun intended Mickey) for the trip.

Walt Disney World offers flexibility in their lodging, and they offer three different types of priced resorts, but I can tell you that having tried them all, you cannot go wrong with either one.  The rooms for the most part will be used for sleeping and resting, and they all serve that purpose incredibly well, the other amenities get better with each level of resort.  Listed below the three types of lodging and a few restaurants that you can expect to get.

  1. Deluxe: Boardwalk, Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian, Yacht Club
  2. Moderate: Riverside, Port Orleans, Saratoga Springs. Caribbean Beach Resort
  3. All-Star Sports, All Star Music, Pop Century

The Walt Disney World Fast Pass – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

What is the Disney World fast pass?  Well if you are new to Walt Disney World or it has been years since your last visit, then there is something new for you at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Fast Pass is a pass for your favorite Disney rides, that allows you to skip the huge lines that some of your favorite rides like Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Space Mountain in addition to many other rides can have.  In some cases some of these wait times can exceed 90 minutes, and in fact during the Summer months most of the time, they do.

But this system of speeding up the lines for the people that actually have the heart and courage to ride is not only good for the rides in the Magic Kingdom.  They also have the same system in Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom.  The system is fairly easy, and here is how it works.  You take the ticket that you used to enter the theme park, and go to the Fast Pass booth.  Most of these are usually right near the entrance lines for most of the attraction rides.  There you will find a booth and several of them, that you can insert your valid Walt Disney World ticket into, the booth then returns your original ticket and issues you a Fast Pass ticket with a return time to enjoy your ride without the long wait lines.

The Disney World Fast Pass will have a return time that usually gives you a one hour delay that will allow you enjoy one of the many attractions that each of these parks offer, without having to make the long line of one of the more popular rides.  As I have been able to do, most of the times if there are long lines, you can seek a Walt Disney World employee and on occasion they will have plenty of these Fast Pass tickets available to assist you especially if your party is very large.  This helps them to avoid these long wait lines at the booths, and keeps people moving within the theme park.  Try these fast passes the next time you visit the Magic Kingdom or any of your favorite theme parks at Walt Disney World or Disneyland.
